Whatsapp is the most used messaging app by people all over the world. Through this app it is possible to communicate and share experiences and emotions with all our friends, relatives, colleagues or simply acquaintances. It is very simple to use (even for the less technological) and above all it is 100% free. With Whatsapp not only text messages are sent but it is also possible to send / receive multimedia messages (with photos, videos and voice audio files). But that's not enough. In order to best express their own emozioni, in the messages you can insert the classics emoticons or the so-called STICKERS (ie "stickers") which are images (both static and animated) with which it is possible to best convey a thought or a simple emotion (joy, sadness, anger, embarrassment, surprise, etc ...).
Within Whatsapp there are already some predefined stickers for whatsapp ready to use and many other "packs" of stickers that can be downloaded and used. These stickers are depicting animals, objects or generic characters, so they are not personalized.

If you are using your mobile and in the photo gallery you already have a photo of your face, ok you can proceed. Otherwise, if you have it on your computer, we recommend that you use the service from your PC or Mac.
The service to use to create the sticker / sticker of your face in a "cartoon" version is called PhotoCartoon.net. It is a site that can transform photos into cardboard or comics in seconds. Here are the precise steps to follow.
